Egypt Garden WiP

This is Chatelaine's Egypt Garden. I'm hoping that the next time I work on this, I'll be able to finish the ducks and the water around them.

Now to move on to another project. I am participating in a TW SAL for the entire month of October. I will probably work on Dragon Ride for the first week but that's not definite yet.

Another Finish!

This is Egyptian Sampler designed by Teresa Wentzler stitched on Antique White Monaco. I am very happy to finish this one. Chatelaine's Egypt Garden will take it's place in the rotation slot. I can't wait to get this framed!

Egyptian Round Robin

This is my piece from an Egyptian Round Robin that I was in. I'm still trying to decide if I want to add anything to it or leave it the way it is. I am so thrilled with the way it turned out and it was tons of fun as well!

What I've been up to

I've been working on sewing a purse for myself. My old one is falling apart and I can't find one anywhere to replace it so I'm trying to make one. It's going well but I need some magnetic snaps before I go any further on it. I ordered some so now I have to wait for them to come in. The purse is still very much in pieces so a photo wouldn't look real good right now. ;)

I've also been working on several small cross stitch projects here and there. I'm trying to finish some up.

I have 2 quilts that I really need to make but I just can't get into it right now. For some reason, I'm just not that interested in them at the moment. Probably because they are for someone else and the fabric I chose isn't really my personality. One has a cowboy theme and the other has a butterfly theme. I'll just have to make myself work on them anyway.

Dragon Ride Progress

I finished the dragon on Dragon Ride (by TW ) except for the back stitching. I have the rider and the border left to do. I want to change the border colors up a little bit but I'm a little nervous. I don't want to stitch half of the border and decide that I don't like it. Lol! I've also decided to leave off the shadow stitching under the dragon since he wouldn't have a shadow on a black background.

My Treasure

I completed this little dragon last night. The design is "My Treasure" by Dragon Dreams. It was a freebie on her website. I would add a link for her site but it was shut down the last time I tried to go on it. It's stitched on "Sahara" 14 ct. Aida by

Welcome to my blog!

Well, I finally gave in and started a blog. I'll probably talk mostly about cross stitching since that is what I do most of the time.

Speaking of which, here is a progress pic of 25th Anniversary by The Silver Lining that I was working on last week. I don't know if you can tell yet but it's going to be 2 white roses. I'm planning on leaving off the 25th part and turn it into a wedding sampler for my sister. This week I am working on Dragon Ride by Teresa Wentzler. If you haven't guessed already, I am a rotation stitcher.
